Outdoors, these plants like bright, dappled, but they also can tolerate full sun.
Like many palms, parlour palms like moist soil, but they are sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged or sitting in a water-saturated potting mix. So let the soil or potting mix dry out slightly between waterings.
Average indoor temperatures of 18-26°C are best for a palm
The parlour palm is a heavy feeder and requires fertilizing from spring to early fall with a fertiliser, following label instructions. Do not feed it during the late autumn and winter when the plant is dormant.
A palm is considered non-toxic to humans and pets.
Although the plant can be easy to care for, it's prone to one particular issue that happens to both indoor and outdoor parlour palms. Keep an eye out for leaf tip burn
Leaf Tip Burn
Leaf tip burn means the tips and leaves have turned yellow or brown. This can be caused by:
- Chilled air
- Poor soil conditions
- Compacted roots
The palm is self-cleaning, which means it typically will shed its brown fronds on its own.
